UPDATE: The Royals announced Yordano Ventura left Friday’s game early due to “right hand weakness.”

ST. LOUIS (AP) Kansas City Royals starter Yordano Ventura was removed after three innings Friday for the second straight start, trailing 2-0 against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Royals infielders had a meeting on the mound with Yadier Molina at the plate before Molina flied out to end the third. The team had no immediate announcement.

In his last start, Ventura gave up four earned runs in three innings in a loss to the Rangers.
